Broome Co. Pipelines and Leases / Sanford Lawsuit

I created this map today based on latest Broome County Lease maps.

Note how much purple (leases) in the Town of Sanford.
Note also Bluestone Gatherning line terminates in Sanford.

Sanford is clearly a kind of "Ground Zero" for fracking
in Broome County and New York State.

NRDC/Catskill Citizens for Safe Energy
has just sued the Town of Sanford
in Federal Court
over censorship of gas discussion
at public meetings.

UPDATE: I've updated this image with a) The current route of the proposed Constitution Pipeline, and b) new leases which are in the thumbnail for the current Broome County maps, but not on the maps themselves. (curious)

new leases, constitution pipeline

Much of the Town of Sanford is in the Delaware River Basin

Most of Sanford is in the Delaware River Basin

May you, and all beings
be happy and free from suffering :)

I agree...maybe the town of Colesville should be sued as well...there is land across the road from me that is leased....Colesville is planning on allowing drilling...
